Meet Coach Creek

Meet Coach Creek

~ Written By: Erinn Borg, Senior ~ On Thursday, September 28, 2017, I conducted a short interview with the 5th to 6th grade girls’ volleyball coach, Mrs. Creek. She let me in on a bit about her own background with the game, what she loves most about volleyball, and what she loves most about her team in particular. Mrs. Creek played volleyball competitively from 5th grade through all four of her college years at Judson. It was this that got her into coaching the game, I’m super competitive and I missed just being around the game; I just love the game in general. She has now been coaching for Parkview’s volleyball team for three years. As a coach, Mrs. Creek said that her proudest moment is when she gets to watch one of her players do something that they didn’t think they could, and watch their faces light up when they realize that they have succeeded at what they thought was impossible for themselves. I asked Mrs. Creek what she loved most about this team and her response was, I love how encouraging they are; I really stressed that to them last year and they’re just great at it. On multiple occasions I’ve had people from the other schools come up to me and tell me how awesome the girls were at encouraging one another. That’s better than winning to me, and I love winning. Though the team doesn’t have a verse of the year, they do have a devotional before all of their practices. I asked Mrs. Creek what her favorite one of the year was and she recalled the verse from the first practice of the year, Colossians 3:23: Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters. Mrs. Creek says that the biggest thing that she stresses to her girls is that the most important thing is to point to God, through everything that you do. They have had a few games at public schools and she has tried to emphasize the importance of showing the light of God through the way we act in all situations, especially among those who have no exposure to Christ....

Trap Shooting Recap

Trap Shooting Recap

Parkview Christian Academy’s trapshooting team recently completed their inaugural season. 19 athletes competed in the Illinois High School Clay Target League consisting of boys and girls ranging from 8th to 12th grades. They shot weekly at Downers Grove Sportsmen’s Club in Morris, IL and competed against 13 teams statewide. Trapshooting is the fastest growing and safest sport in the nation. States and teams are often doubling in size year over year and there’s never been a recorded injury to an athlete or spectator. Coach Jed Davis said, Families quickly fall in love with the sport. The environment is geared to them with lots of interaction between athletes and parents. The social aspect to trapshooting is unmatched. As evidence, just visit the clubhouse on any given Friday night. It’s truly a family sport. Parkview’s team finished 5th in their conference and 12 athletes participated in the state tournament held at Brittany Shooting Park in Bunker Hill, IL. 8th graders Eva Davis and Amelia Hollembeak received 1st and 3rd place medals at this tournament. Coach Davis said, I couldn’t be more proud. Just a few months ago, none of our athletes had shot trap before and some had never even shot a shotgun before. They caught on fast and did great! The team would like to thank Downers Grove Sportsmen’s Club, Hollembeak Construction, and the NRA Foundation for their generous sponsorship and support. They helped with supplying facilities, guns, shells, and uniforms. The team is anxious for next season and will include boys and girls from 6th to 12th grades. Please know, if you don’t attend Parkview, you can still be on the team. For more information, please contact Coach Davis at (815) 378-9413 or visit here. Future posts by email?
